The Kentucky Arts Council is inviting Kentucky schools to be part of the Kentucky Derby by decorating canvases for the Governor’s Derby Celebration. Picnic tables on the Old State Capitol grounds will be fitted with horse heads and tails, and the canvases, or “Derby blankets,” will be place over the tabletops like a blanket over a horse. Any Kentucky school, public or private, can participate. Schools must provide their own supplies to complete the project. Blankets need to be 36 inches wide and 60 inches long, and made of durable, water resistant material. Paint must be outdoor latex and able to withstand inclement weather. There are no theme requirement and canvases must be sent to the arts council by April 23, 2018. Blankets can be shipped to Kentucky Arts Council, 1025 Capital Center Drive, Third floor, Frankfort, KY 40601.
